Working with Wellbeing Champions

Improving the health and wellbeing of all your people is most effective when it’s not only a top-down approach. Empowering people from across your business to support their peers helps to embed understanding, allyship and a supportive culture.

That’s why we work with you to develop, nurture and support Wellbeing Champions from across your business; people who want to take their seat at the table and be part of a movement to change the landscape for health and wellbeing at work.

"Smart About Health emulates what a true business partnership looks like. They not only provide clear solutions and responses to the business challenges you are trying to solve, but also provide insight, differing points of views and challenges to ensure that the level of impact you aim to have is achieved. Our Mental Wellbeing Champions have loved being able to work with Laura and the team and definitely see them as an extension to our Ocado Family."
